|“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center." - Kurt Vonnegut|
The senior class chose the above quote as the overarching theme of their commencement. This quote also embodies the strength and forward-thinking qualities of Colorado College students. The feeling perspective students get when they first visit campus and stays with them through this monumental occasion of commencement.
